B.C. putting $72 million towards community climate action

VICTORIA – The Government of British Columbia’s 2024 budget is putting funding towards large climate-action projects throughout the province.

Approximately $72 million has been allocated through the Local Government Climate Action Program. Instead of disbursing the funds on an annual basis the province will provide three years’ worth of funding in a lump sum, a release said.

“This provincial program punches above its weight by supporting the efforts of local governments to lower emissions and adapt to our changing climate. The accelerated delivery of funds by the province will support the fast tracking of local priorities and advance community-based climate change initiatives,” Union of B.C. Municipalities president Trish Mandewo said in a statement.

The program’s design considers input from local governments, the Union of B.C. Municipalities, Modern Treaty Nations and the Independent Climate Solutions Council. Local governments determine how funds are spent, but projects must align with the CleanBC Roadmap to 2030 and/or climate preparedness and adaptation strategies, the release said.

To be eligible, governments must sign on to the B.C. Climate Action Charter (optional for Modern Treaty Nations), complete reporting requirements and publicly post a completed survey and attestation form stating the funds are used for climate-action projects.

Indigenous communities outside of Modern Treaty Nations operate under different regulatory frameworks, the release said.
